Enough

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 7:36 am

I got one of those emails that travel around the internet that requests that you take a test. Normally, I put them in the trash and go about my business. This one was forwarded from my sister, so I gave it more consideration. It was a set of questions that you had to answer with ONE Word. See the test below.

It started out with, “Where’s your cell phone?” It asked a lot of favorite type questions like, “What’s your favorite meal?” Last time you laughed? Last time you cried? Each question had to be answered with ONE word. I have to admit that I made up a word to answer the question, “Your fear?” I answered “Papertowelless.”

The test revealed preferences and patterns and it turned out to be a fun and semi-insightful experience. It got me to thinking about a test answer that the late Dr. Dave Dobson gave during an oral, psychological evaluation he was given when interviewing for a job. The company psychologist asked, “What do you want out of life?” Dave said to the interviewer that he could answer the question in ONE word. The psychologist scoffed and said that it would trivialize the question and reflect poorly on the candidate to give such a shallow answer. Dave asked if the interviewer was curious to hear his answer, and he said he was. Dave replied “Enough.”

Wouldn’t it be a life game changer if we simple had enough?

Many people are seeking more, when enough will easily satisfy them. Others are seeking less, when enough would fill the bill.

Enough is a matter of trust.

Consider the financial independence daydream that most of us have had. It’s usually comprised of having tons more than we need. The reason for wanting more is to build a cushion in case we begin to lose that heightened position. The real focus is on loss, not gain. There is a lack of trust in our ability to manifest enough.

We employ trust every day. We trust that our car, which is made up of thousands of moving parts, will get us from Point A to Point B without them coming unhinged. Outside of physical emergencies, we trust that the part of us that regulates our heartbeat and breathing will continue to pump enough blood and give us enough air without us requesting more than we need. Yet, we most often fail to trust anything that doesn’t fit inside our intellectual box.

Your imagination is too big for your intellectual capacity. As Wayne Dyer says, “Imagination is the force of creation.” Can you imagine for a moment that there is a part of you capable of creating enough?

It is this ability to trust that mitigates the intellect’s overemphasis on fear – the fear of there not being enough.

So I would add one more question to the test below: What do you want out of life? I trust you will consider the ONE word answer, “ENOUGH.”

 

All the best,

John
